How to remove XJ track bar bolt

Any ideas how to remove this bolt without cutting the bolt or the bracket? Cant get a wrench or a screwdriver to stop the nut from spinning.

Get a flat cold chisel or a tapered round tip punch with 6 sides. Slide the chisel into the open end of the bracket and under the bolt. The flats should catch the flats on the bolt.
